Turn the .html page into a aspx page, or configure your IIS to treat .html pages as if they were .aspx files, so they are processed by ASP.NET:
IIS -> select the web site -> Properties -> Home Directory -> Configuration -> Mappings
Actually, there is probably an awful lot more to it than that, so just re-doing the pages as .aspx is probably going to be easier.

Yes, you could use (server-side) VBScript, but then you would have to map the .html files to asp.dll, so they are treated by IIS as classic asp pages. I'm afraid .html files are not capable on their own of any server-side processing. That means you only
have the two choices I outlined above: change the .html files to server-side files, or fool IIS into thinking they are.

You need to use server side language to access your database.... Html pages are client side that executes on the client side. You will need to convvert your html pages to asp.net to connect to your server..
Hope this helps U....
